Volkswagen Beetle Wolfsburg
Everyone loves a Volkswagen Beetle and a convertible version is no exception. The Wolfsburg edition, and the Beetle entirely, is sadly off the market after the 2019 model release however it is still relatively easy to find. The Beetle Wolfsburg is a fun and comfortable ride like any other Beetle model. A 2.0 L engine gives out 184 lb-ft of torque and enough get up and go to really feel the wind in your hair. It’s stylish and available in two unique colours – a light beige and a stonewashed blue – with a colour-matches dash pad on the interior. Standard tech includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a touchscreen infotainment system, navigation, automatic climate control, and heated seats.
Volkswagen Beetle Dune
The Dune model of the Volkswagen Beetle is sporty where the Wolfsburg was stylish. Introduced in 2016, the Dune offers an exclusive yellowish golden colour option and a rugged off road look. Both Beetle models get a fuel efficiency of 9.0 L/100 km city and 7.1 on the highway. Apart from being sportier, there’s no real difference between the Dune and the Wolfsburg.
The Cabriolet is an older model from the 80s and 90s, it is the convertible version of the Golf. It retained the pre-1980 style of rear lamp clusters and the top needed to be raised and lowered manually until 1991 when it became electrically operated. From 1988 until the end of production the Cabriolet came with a “Clipper” body kit featuring smooth body-coloured bumpers, wheel-arch extensions, and side skirts.
In production from 2006-2016 was the Volkswagen EOS with convertible Wolfsburg edition. This was a 4 seater front wheel drive with a 2.0 L intercooled Turbo I-4 engine boasting 200 horsepower and a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Volkswagen BlueSport Concept
The BlueSport is a concept for Volkswagen with currently no production date. It’ll be a 2 seater soft top roadster with start-stop hybrid technology and a fuel-efficient TDI Clean Diesel engine. Fingers crossed it makes it to market!
